Intro to Tree Identification Workshop
Back by popular demand! We’re offering this workshop for the second time this summer.
Are you interested in cultivating a deeper connection to the natural world around you?
Join CPAWS Manitoba Environmental Educator Carly Gray as she shares her journey into exploring and identifying native Manitoba plants and trees. During this workshop, participants will explore and practice using free apps, field guides, and other tools to begin their journey into tree identification.
Join us Tue, Sep 5, 2023 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM (CDT) at Assiniboine Park (Site 3, Assiniboine Park Drive Winnipeg, MB R3P 2N6)
Each participant will also receive a Manitoba Tree Field Guide to take home with them.
This interactive workshop is designed for beginners wanting to dip their toes into naming and learning more about native trees and plants. There will be movement within an area to practice our identification skills.
Please bring a phone or device capable of downloading apps for this event as well as a pen or pencil. We will be downloading Seek (by iNaturalist) for this event.
Note: if you cannot download these apps, no problem! You’ll still have a lot to learn at the workshop.
We recommend wearing comfortable, closed-toe shoes and long pants as we will be walking around our site at Assiniboine Park.

Weather & Cancellation Policy
We try not to let the weather stop us from getting outside. With the right gear you can have a great time in most weather conditions.
That being said, safety must always be our top priority. We can’t be outside in a thunderstorm and may need to cancel if roads are hazardous.
Weather forecasts are notoriously unreliable. While we will do our best to monitor and make good judgment calls, there will be times when we decide to cancel and the skies clear and other days when a storm or high winds pop up unexpectedly.
We’ll send out an e-mail alert the day before an event letting registrants know if there’s a good chance we need to cancel. We will check the forecast again a few hours before the event to determine if we can try to go ahead.
